C-Arm and Staff

“The C-Arm technology is used in operating rooms across the country to visualize surgical patients’ anatomy in real time during critical surgical procedures,” said Mark Layne, Director of Radiologic Sciences at the Technical College of the Lowcountry. “By adding this piece of radiology equipment to our program, we can take our students’ training to the next level. Our Radiology students can train side by side with their peers in the Surgical Technology program in a simulated laboratory environment. This increases their level of understanding of safety protocols, sterile procedures, and overall competence in performing critical patient care skills. We strive to prepare our students for any possible scenarios they may see in real-life.” 

“Coastal Carolina Hospital has a long-standing relationship with the T.C.L.,” said Joel Taylor, Chief Executive Officer. “We are very excited to provide this technology for students to train on. This is a C-Arm we’ve used during procedures in our operating rooms. Having the opportunity to use equipment currently in use in the healthcare industry will prepare these students for quality employment after graduation.”

T.C.L. students will begin using the C-Arm this summer. For more information or to interview about the program, please contact Daisy Burroughs at 803-833-0104 or email [email protected]
